Paytm Mall will empower your local shopkeepers to sell online products using QR Codes
Today 99% of all Indian commerce is done offline — that means more business is done in neighborhood shops, mandis and wholesale markets than on all of e-commerce combined. How great would it be if we partnered with our huge offline merchant network to drive their footfalls online?
That’s exactly what we’ve done — thousands of Paytm Partner stores can now start selling Samsung smartphones minus the hassles of inventory and logistics. Consumers can visit these neighborhood stores, scan the QR code using their Paytm or Paytm Mall app and order products online.
How does this help Paytm partners?
- 1. Partners can sell products without investing in inventory or logistics.
- 2. They can promise customers same-day deliveries.
- 3. They can sell a variety of products in their stores, i.e. an apparel store can now sell electronics or groceries and vice-versa.
This is how it works-
Now the inevitable question — what’s the point of this?
Our goal is to enable customers transact online and offline easily. We feel this assisted commerce model will transform regular businesses. Imagine, an apparel salesman will now be able to sell electronics or groceries, and vice versa. The possibilities are endless.
